Agricultural Build

15th January 2019

We were recently involved with an agricultural build project in collaboration with Robinsons Scotland.  Robinsons were asked to develop an additional cattle shed for a progressive beef farm in Dumfries and Galloway.   They wanted to house as many cattle as possible in a cost-effective manner.   In contrast to the sheds already on the farm with a central feed passage, they decided on an external feed passage and instead of a solid floor throughout for bedding they developed a design that allowed 90% of the shed to be slatted with a slurry tank below and separate solid floor pens for bedded calving cows.

 Our job was to provide a variety of concrete wall panels to support the build.   We supplied 140mm x 500mm panels that were put on a timed delivery to be on site as the steel sanctions were situated in the central part of the building. As you can see these panels fitted inside the steel, therefore the concrete panels needed to be sited before the steel sanctions

Our pre-stressed structural panels are cast in a length to suit your building.   Our 90mm full panels were used to form the walls at the gable ends of the building from the ground to box profile section as a strong perimeter.

Our panels are a lighter and more cost-effective alternative to a block wall where timely labour is needed.   By choosing our concrete panels, you not only reduce your costs but they are more efficient and easier to install.

 Exterior Concrete Panels

On the sides of this building we supplied 90mm x 500mm high half panels to infill below the feed barriers and self-locking yokes.  These panels sit on the foundations, 150mm under ground level.  All our panels are solidly constructed, enabling barriers, gates, racks and cubicle frames to be attached straight to the panels or steel frames with raw bolts.
